Overload progression and how to make sure you aren't spinning your wheels
- Overloading - Progressive overload should be a fundamental characteristic of resistance training programs directed at the development of neuromuscular capabilities and athletic performance.
- The body and it’s tissues only adapt when it is he body and it’s tissues only adapt when it is exposed to stresses beyond it’s normal homeostatic range - Dr. Carwyn Sharp (#81)
- Overload refers to providing a greater stimulus or intensity in a resistance training program than an athlete is accustom.
- Progression refers to systemic planning and change. The intensity of a resistance training program must become progressively greater in order for an athlete to continue to improve.
